At 31, Dario Cologna is Switzerland’s most successful cross-country skier, and the face of cross-country skiing far beyond the country’s borders. Since 2010, Cologna has been part of the Odlo family, contributing his professional input to the development of the latest technologies. He was deeply involved in the development and design of the racing suit for Sochi.

During training for the Olympics, Cologna tore several tendons in his right ankle. Only three months later, he took two gold medals in Sochi. His fighting spirit and professionalism are an inspiration for many people.

When he’s not on skis, Cologna is an avid golfer and also enjoys playing a football match. He enthusiastically supports his favourite side, AC Milan.
